OK - to allow me to connect to your PC/MAC, you must install remote access software. The software is below, use the "Family and Friends" version. It's free.

Once installed I need the ID and Password ***** displays, i do not need the one you created, I am looking for the one that TeamViewer gives you when you open the program.
Thanks
Kris

For the $48 unauthorized charge you just put on my paypal, I don’t expect to have to pay another $39 to get an answer to this problem. Tell me what I have to download to fix this.
Computer technician: Kris Rodgers, IT Manager replied 1 month ago

The service is not $5.00 and you have been charged more than that. The total costs are displayed maybe you did read the page.
I cannot handle payment issues as I am an end user to the site like you please call 1(###) ###-####and speak to the billing team and once you're happy, let me know and we can continue.

Who said $5? I said $48. And send me to whoever can refund me. I was supposed to get a free trail.
